    Who woulda thunk?

    Just to let everyone know that I took a carry permit class this past Sat. and passed with flying colors, even though it was raining the whole time and we were outside shooting....
    There were a total of 15 people in our class and the most that was missed on the written test was five. I believe it was the guy in the front row that had trouble reading....surprisingly I did not miss any questions on the written test and made a score of 100 on the range. (But they gave everyone a score of 100 as long as they did not miss the target).
    I actually went to the local police station since they offer monthly classes where they had us shoot from 3, 7, 10, 15, 20yards.
    Today I'll be going to the DMV to turn in my application and also get fingerprinted.

    Don't wiggle so much when you're fingerprinted. It makes a smudge and they have to do it again.

    Good for you!

    Shooting in the rain sucks, but you now know you can do it. The BGs won't wait for a nice perfect day to do their worst.

    Now the wait...

    Congrats, MrShonts.

    Am I the only person who enjoys shooting in the rain?

    Nope, but I could use some wipers on my shooting glasses/scope sometimes...

    Yaaay!

    Mrshonts tried to fool me when I asked about his test. He looked all mopey with his head hung low, and he almost got me for a minute there when I was starting to regret all the encouraging remarks I was saying earlier about only a cross-eyed person could miss an entire B-27 target at under 15 yards and score below a 70.

    good job.

    Shootin' the rain is one realistic senario. I practice with and without gloves and heavy clothing too, as I live in the northern part of the country.

    Exellent !

    Now...get the paper work done and sent off. I cant tell you how many times people took the class and let the 6 month deadline(here in Ar.) expire. I did a class Saturday with 20 people in it and 2 of them were retakes because they let time slip by...

    And it does slip by when you are having fun....

    Congratulations! Feels good, doesn't it. You'll feel even better when you get your permit. I did mine in an indoor range. Shooting in the rain, my my, what will they think of next?
